Acceptable Data Center Energy Consumption Standards

April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 81

Today most of the organizations are operating their business with the use of technology and various IT devices. Due to this a lot of heat is generated by these IT machines. The large data centers which are used to store and manage the critical business data use a good amount of electricity in managing the servers. Electricity is used for the cooling and heating processes in these storage.

A large amount of energy is used and also it increases the operation costs also. They should maintain a perfect status quo to meet the required power utilization without overheating the IT infrastructure. Most of the research data shows that up to 80 percent of the power is consumed by various IT devices in the data center. The complete utilization of the server machines is very important and the reduction of machines which takes unnecessary power. In a data center many server machines executes themselves below forty percent of the capacity.

For this organizations are using the virtual environment to effectively utilizing the server capacity. In this way they are able to reduce the extra physical devices for which a lot of energy required they save here. Generally the data centers experience the proper heating and cooling processes insufficient that creates a lot of problem in their data center support process. The entrepreneurs must know about the temperature acceptable guidelines. For this they can take the help of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) guidelines issued for this purpose.

They tell about what should be the optimal temperatures within a data center. Additionally the engineers can customize the design of the rows and racks to form the hot and cool aisles to control the temperature. With this they do not have to have the cooling machines and this also reduces a lot of temperature. The total layout of the data center should be designed in such a way that the utilization of energy should be less to emit lesser amount of heat. So now let us share some data about the ASHRAE guidelines. After the launch of these guidelines many data center & IT support organizations are now coming to know about it. The recommended data center range for temperature has been decided to be 64.4 to 80.6 degree Fahrenheit. The humidity level is also refreshed from 41.9 degree Fahrenheit to 59.

These are some basic information about the acceptable temperature levels for more information the users can go through the ASHRAE standards.
